My name is Michele Starling and I am the Title I instructional coach for Bell Fork Elementary. I have been in education since 1993, taking 5 years  to stay at home with my three girls between years 9 and 10. They are now 18, 20 and 22. My oldest recently graduated from UNCW. My middle girl is a junior at UNCW, and my youngest is a freshman at Coastal Carolina Community College. My husband teaches Earth and Environmental Science at Southwest High School. I have taught pre-school, kindergarten, second grade, third grade, and fourth grade reading. I also worked as a Title I reading specialist, a curriculum support specialist, and a literacy coach before becoming the Title I instructional coach here at Bell Fork. I love the staff and students here and am so happy to be a Bulldog!!
